Delbosque has been an auto technician for about four years, recently joining Honest-1 Auto Care in Carrollton, Texas. What would a day in the life of an auto technician look like? Delbosque goes on to share it’s a very detail-oriented job. “What I enjoy is that you actually get to meet and talk to the customer and show them what parts need repair, what can help the safety of their vehicle on the road.” A teamwork aspect is what draws Delbosque to her work at Honest-1.

Although challenges are a normal part of any job, the stereotype of women not being able to tackle the job of an auto technician is not something Delbosque has let stand in her way. “I’ve always felt different about that. It’s overcoming obstacles and knowing you can work on engines and be just as fast little by little.” shared Delbosque. “I’ve gained a lot of respect for being a female tech and that means a lot to me.”

Don’t be scared and actually go for those jobs not normally seen as female-friendly, is advice Delbosque has for other females going into the business. “You have to trust your instincts. It’s more of a learning curve and you want to bring back to the table just as much as the guys teaching you. You’re only human once and everyone should be treated equally.”
